That's unfortunate. Hope everything can get all sorted out again and working ASAP!

Fires are bad wherever they occur, it's a great shame that a lot of data and hard work would have been lost however hopefully no one was injured.

Great example of why everyone needs to make backups. It's definitely unfortunate.

I still can't imagine how it could have happened. Did they not have sufficient fire supression systems or did the systems fail?

Really odd to hear about a data center having a large fire like that.

You just never know from day to day what awaits. Never like to hear about disasters. I hope everyone had their data backed up.

That's why I can't understand how this could have happened. What data center doesn't have a some type of fire suppression system installed like FM-200 or halon or something

Also, most companies test their fire suppression systems monthly to ensure they are in working order.

Then again, all the above is typical of US companies. So the same standards may not be the same in other countries.
